Amongst the improvement is a completely revamped bar area, boasting a brand-new long bar complete with several “state-of-the-art flat screen TVs,” including on 98 inch LED screen lauded as “the biggest single screen in Southend”.

Featuring a prominent gold theme throughout, the area has been redesigned to increase capacity, enhance service, reduce delays and provide a better all round betting experience for customers, with a variety of live sporting events also set to be shown throughout the year, including top Premier League football and elite boxing match-ups.   

Additional private booths have also seen installation, complete with a variety of mobile phone charging points, with a number of aspects of general modernisation also taking place, including new carpeting throughout the entire venue.

Maintenance to the building’s exterior has also been undertaken, with new signage and neon lighting installed, whilst there has also been extensive improvements to the back of house areas in the casino.

Simon Woodford, general manager at Genting Casino Westcliff, commented. “We are absolutely thrilled to be able to unveil our brand-new refurbishment. We are incredibly proud of the new space, particularly the new long bar area which will provide a much better in casino experience for guests.

“We are looking forward to cementing our reputation as one of the very best places in the city for food, drink, gaming and live sports entertainment.”

Last month Genting announced it was teaming up with International Gaming Technology to launch a brand new gaming product titled SpinSplosion.

Lauded as “the first of its kind in the UK” and affording players “one of the most interactive tournaments available,” the basic premise is that players collect points by touching symbols as they fall from the top of the screen down to the bottom, before disappearing.
